Yummy Pancake Wins Ribbons at the 2008 Ephrata Fair!

Yep! The Ephrata Fair was this past week - it's the largest street fair in PA, and always a ton of fun! Once again this year, I submitted some of my work for judging and won ribbons for all 3 of my submissions! It's the second year in a row that I got ribbons for everything I entered!

I got first place in the Christmas Decoration - Felt and Latch hook category for my hand sewn advent calender:

I also scored first place in the Toys category for Ms. Stitch and Ted the Thread:

and I got second place for my Mr. Toastee Messenger bag in the Useful Article, Crochet category:

I have to say, once again, I am very pleased....I would have liked to have gotten first place for my messenger bag, but I'll take second ^_^

Even Toast Dresses Up For Halloween!

Here is my entry for the Esty Plush Team Sept/Oct project - Costumed Plush Catergory. When I asked Mr Toastee what he wanted to be for halloween, he said, "a black cat". So, I whipped up a little black kitteh costume for him - complete with little pink paws! You can check out the other Plush team project entries on the Plush team blog.

I love living in a world where Toast dresses up for Halloween ^_^

Glow in the Dark = Awesome

Everyone likes stuff that Glows in the dark! When I heard that Bernat came out with glow in the dark yarn, i HAD to get me some! Turns out it's uber expensive - $4 for only 72 yards, but it's totally worth it! The pics suck cause my camera kinda sucks, but check out the glow in the dark mini Mr. Spookee and mini Candy Corn that I whipped up ^_^ They are available in my etsy shop!
